PS3 Games Start Shipping with Jailbreak-breaking Firmware

49 second read


Right now, the piracy and backup-enabling PS3 Jailbreak requires firmware 3.41 to be loaded on the PS3. Sony summarily released a new firmware, 3.42 that killed the exploit. Cheap pirates though opted to stay on the earlier firmware, losing PSN connectivity.

Now their options have been lessened even more.

Looks like new games will be shipping with the new firmware, rendering the Jailbreak useless. EA’s upcoming Medal of Honor has been confirmed to ship with, and require firmware 3.42. Attempts to circumvent the firmware requirement have thankfully proven fruitless, making it seem like Sony’s winning the cat and mouse game at the moment. Those who’ve tried have been greeted with a “80010019″ error message.

It’s pretty inevitable that all anticipated games from now on – Black Ops, GT5 and the like – will include similar protection, making PS3 Jailbreaker’s days of wanton thievery numbered.

    You guys should get the facts before posting news that isn’t news. Simply delete the Update folder and run OBM 1.16 in Patched mode so it runs the new hermes 3 payload. Game works just fine. Retards.

    You will be surprised how many pirates there are, even people who are so anti-piracy on sites (this one included) and yet low and behold they pirate be it games or movies and series, congrats to Sony on getting smart, and keeping the support for the PS3, but the pirates are hard at work :devil:
